What IS this ‘steampunk’ idea people seem to be talking about? That in itself is a fairly good question, and this book, the aptly titled anthology – Steampunk!, helps to answer just that.
I really loved this book. It’s filled with stories that together help showcase how broad this emerging genre really is. With everything from the classic Victorian era setting to Westerns and short comics, it isn’t shy about the fact that steampunk can be almost any sort of story. Honestly, I couldn’t put this book down! The stories themselves are fantastic, and the collection only serves to make each of them shine brighter. Who can say no to romance and technology wrapped up in shining copper and brass? Even if you’re not normally a short story reader, pick this book up! You’ll have a blast reading it!
